A Date Night Where We Actually Left The House...

I hope everyone had a safe 4th and enjoyed the long weekend, as we certainly did! I'm not going to bore you with all of it, but I have to share date night and a new restaurant we tried. I guess I should mention that I was a little homesick on the 4th, but looking forward to the Cajun cuisine pepped me right up. I don't believe I've ever told you, but my mother is from Louisiana. As such, I basically think that my veins are filled with Blackened seasoning. 
I can put it on anythang.

True to form, it was a rainy afternoon because we decided to run a few errands before our reservation, but hallelujah the clouds parted when we reached Springs Orleans.

Once we had ordered, I tried to capture a romantic moment, but you know how that goes...

And oh boy, oh BOY!
We ordered Disco Fries {smothered in mozzarella and gravy}, Calamari, a Crawfish Poboy, Crawfish Etouffee, and of course...Beignets for dessert. Lemme tell ya, it cured my homesick right up, and I won't even blame it on "emotional eating". No excuses here. Just deliciousness.

Well, that and this guy. He always puts my heart in the right place.


In case anyone is wondering, the dress was from Old Navy, but like three years ago. I'm just happy I finally got to rip the tags off! Hence why a spending freeze is necessary, and I've realized that I need to utilize what I already have. Are there any fashion/closet challenges going on? I think it's about time I try one of those.
